investigation. and look at the communiques that came from ambassador stevens. look what wa -- what was transpiring in libya. we have to realize this is a terrorist attack. this an act of war. this is not something that was carried out by some video watching benghazi-based community organizer that said let's bow flash mob the consulate in benghazi. this was a terrorist attack. bill: do you think it stops with susan rice? or does it go to the secretary of state hillary clinton or beyond that? >> this is why we need an independent council and we need the investigations to begin immediately. i think this is an issue -- benghazi-gate is the right term for this. this is very, very serious. probably more serious than watergate. and to call this a response to a video when it was obviously a terrorist attack -- and when you read some of the documentation on this, and you know that there has been other sites and locations that have bind attack in libya, when you know that the libyan government felt there was something getting ready to transpire. when you know a get know detainee was released
: the day after ambassador stevens and three others were killed, president obama gets on the plane and campaign stop in vegas is different from the other 2,002 people who died in afghanistan in the last 11 years. >> bob: you are suggesting we're not at war -- >> eric: he should have stayed home and met with the intel people. >> dana: definition of war in uniform versus the terrorist attack of civilians there is a difference there. andrea, i want your take because senator mccain talked about this strange, bizarre discrepancy between what the administration knew about the intel and what they said to the american people. and now how it was self-evident and trying to muddy the waters. i don't think they will get away with it, especially when it comes to oversight from congress. senator mccain. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey, al-qaeda is on the way. everything is fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> it's certainly political. how else could you trot out, our u.n. ambassador to say this was a spontaneous demonstr
is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundament
that was there. steven briar and antonin scalia and clarence thomas and anthony kennedy. this morning's homily called for the spirit of god to place his blessing on the new year. speaking of the supreme court, a gallup poll shows americans are split in confidence in the judicial branch. when asked, 53% said they have a fair amount of trust. 27% said not very much. only 14% gave their full trust. when it comes to how well the supreme court is doing its job, 49% approve and 40% disapprove. it is likely the last time high-profile cases like health care weighed heavily on the public's view of the court. that ruling on the president's law castigated the nation. the new term could have another round of blockbuster cases, from gay marriage to race-based college entrance policies. we have a current partner of and one of our favorite court watchers, thank you so much for coming in today. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: let's start with day 1, tomorrow, involving shell oil company and allegations of human rights abuses in nigeria. >> absolutely. this is an interesting case. have you a real problem. you
led up to the death of ambassador chris stevens, two navy seals and a worker. and steve centanni, what's the latest in washington. >> the fbi has yet to enter benghazi because of the dangerous security climate there. senator corker who sits on the foreign relations committee wants to know why, and he fired off a letter to intel chief james clapper, calling the situation bizarre and demanding answers and says in part, 18 days ago, the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. and what has changed in libya in such a short time. is that even fbi agents and our personnel entered the city. and the u.n. ambassador susan rice who has said a few days after the attack, that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising and the long video. >> and we have reports now that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack and yet, they sent her out, to say things that were absolutely false and continued to do so. and then, as mccain says the violence in lib rah clicks, with the story and al-qaeda diminished. >> for its part. the administra
of september 11th, after this had happened, but before he knew that ambassador stevens had been killed, came out, criticized the statement that had come out of the cairo embassy about the -- about the demonstrations there. then got a huge amount of criticism. as the facts began to pile up against obama, the romney campaign stayed somewhat silent, and has still to this day not made a lot of the problems that developed. >> the debate is built entirely around foreign policy. if romney doesn't take advantage of that platform to raise questions, again, poke holes in the president's arguments -- >> greta: why isn't he now? this is coming from the super pac. >> i think the romney campaign thinks it can wait that long, at least some people in the romney campaign, think it can wait, and want to do his foreign policy right before that debate, so there's some bringing together of these arguments. i think the time is now. you had governor romney asked about this last week on his plane. you know, how has the administration handled it? he said, look, it's too early to judge it. that's not the right answer
